Strolling into the 4th month
« on: April 07, 2018, 02:32:26 pm »
:D wow I am so pleased to be writing this, I am heading into month 4 with a spring in my step and feeling confident that there will be a penthouse party with an 80's theme, full fancy dress everyone.
I am still using patches but only put them on for a few hours each day and on a very low strength now so in all honesty they are obviously not helping me physically but they are a security comfort and I am not ready to ditch them completely just yet.
I am currently still reading the Kristina Irvings quit book and I have found it easier to digest than Allen Carr's book which I have read a few times now so my tip to anyone who doesn't 'get' Mr Carr's book I recommend trying this other one.
I am just getting over a virus head cold thing and have noticed that the cough cleared up a lot quicker than when I was a smoker so very chuffed.
If I get any notion or a craving or thought I just ask myself why on earth would I want to make myself an addict again and why would I want to be smoking - withdrawing, smoking - withdrawing ect such a pointless pit to be in. Yes I do sometimes have days where I feel a bit BLAH but that's just life and we have to find other ways to lift ourselves up.
I have put on a little weight but it does not bother me and I would rather go up 1 dress size than go back to a life of addiction, stinking and penniless. I am not exercising at the moment but shall at some point jump back on it, until then I am enjoying my food :)
I am going to do this
Quit 6th January 2018

Very well done @Gerti1 ,I never doubted you could get here .From month 2 you have been very positive. Im amazed that us long time smokers on here have finally decided that we are no longer smokers and never will be again. Can you believe my app says I haven't smoked 4200 fags since last November.Yes the November 17s have done very well with help from this forum. Last night someone handed me a fag and I lit it but immediatly pinched it out burning my fingers, thankfully it was only when I wondered were the lighter had come from I realised it was only a dream, the fact I was horrified was a good thing. We will all have that party this year and you will be there.007
Quit 16th November 2017.
Last smoke 21st November 2017.
Trigger word...LEG.

Great going @Gerti1. I can’t wait for the 80’s party.  Neon socks anybody? Oh, also can you bring some of those amazing cakes you’ve been baking.  I am literally drooling at the thought of them.....
